OSNews, Generic OSes There's one complaint we here at OSNews get thrown in our faces quite often: what's up with the lack of, you know, operating system news on OSNews? Why so much mobile phone news? Why so much talk of H264, HTML5, and Flash? Where's the juicy news on tomorrow's operating systems? Since it's weekend, I might as well explain why things are the way they are. Hint: it has nothing to do with a lack of willingness.

"But about processes, I might get a lot though ;) It's an inherent part of my microkernel + isolated design."

I trust that you've thoroughly studied the original Gnu Hurd design, and clearly understand why that proved impractical. It sounds vaguely like you're heading down the path they started down in 1990. (I was a big fan of the concept - imagine upgrading the kernel without restarting the computer, how... mainframe! - and was disappointed when it failed.)

By the way, have you considered working on the new Hurd instead of your own kernel? Or working on Canonical's new Linux startup manager? Collaboration generally beats the pants off of a lone wolf. I realize it's a trade-off - the lone wolf, even pants-less, is often happier than a pack member, but the pack brings down the big game.
